Item description for The Mission Driven Parish by Patrick J. Brennan...

A pastor of one of the most vibrant parishes in the United States inspires and challenges all Catholics to renew the church from where they are. Fr. Brennan offers fresh ideas on empowerment of the laity, evangelization, governance, mercy and justice, youth and young adults, worship, and much more. He looks into the future of parish life in face of recent scandals, the identity crisis of the priesthood, the lure of fundamentalist evangelical parishes, and alienation of many people from organized religion. The Mission Driven Parish is Patrick Brennan's most important book; it encourages Catholics to reclaim their spiritual authority and offers a blueprint for renewal based on principles and practices that are working now.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Mission Driven Parish?

A Courageous Book for a Critical Time  Mar 26, 2007
The Mission Driven Parish is a courageous book written by a heroic pastor seeking the best of God's Reign for those he serves. In his revealing autobiographical style, Fr. Patrick Brennan shows, not tells, how a Catholic parish, its staff and parishioners can make evangelization, the recognized mission of the Catholic Church, the hub of parish life. And it works. The impact of Fr. Brennan's leadership, co-laboring with parish staff like Dawn Mayer and others, exerts a generational influence upon thousands of people.

The book is more than dried ink printed on paper. It is about writing a living faith upon the hearts and minds of young and old, affluent and not, where all belong. I know. Our family belongs to Holy Family Parish. Our worship is jubilant and meaningful. Our marriage is strong and vibrant. Our daughter's understanding has blossomed in the Gathered at Table program as she prepares for first Communion. Our participation in ministry is nurtured and nurturing.

The Mission Driven Parish walks the talk of what is possible to make the Catholic faith lived with a relevant and strong witness. May Fr. Brennan's vision and courage to blueprint what works at Holy Family Parish inspire other pastors and laity to find their "mission voice" to evangelize.
